The Blues, who were initially handed a two-window embargo, will be able to dip into the winter market if Frank Lampard wishes to bolster his ranks
Chelsea have been freed to spend again in January, with an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport seeing their two-window ban cut in half.
The Blues saw sanctions imposed on them by FIFA in March when world football’s governing body took action against the Premier League outfit and their registration of foreign players under the age of 18.
It was determined that Chelsea should be prevented from adding any fresh faces to their squad until the summer of 2020.
Frank Lampard on the transfer ban being reduced says it is a positive outcome and he is pleased for football reasons. He adds there has been no discussion yet about potential transfers. #EVECHE

Blues boss Frank Lampard has fared admirably without being able to add to his ranks, with the faith shown in promising academy graduates being richly rewarded.
He will, however, welcome the opportunity to be able to add greater depth to his squad.
